In Indianapolis, it seems like a new fashion event is scheduled almost daily. Compared with just a few short years ago, this city’s fashion scene has blossomed exponentially. It’s amazing to see how large the network of fashion-minded folks has grown, with the help of groups like Pattern and Fashion Arts Society. But while we have improved the style and culture of Indianapolis so much, there are still some areas that we could improve upon.
One example is staying on top of the trends. Often when I attend a fashion show in this city, the pieces are well made, or demonstrate great creativity, but lack relevance in today’s bustling fashion world. Indianapolis needs to pay attention to what’s happening in NYC, Paris, London and Milan if we want to keep up with the industry.
This is the purpose of the Trendianapolis fashion show. Next Wednesday, Feb 27 at The Libertine, three designers and two boutiques will present pieces based on three top trends straight from the biggest spring runways: Sport Chic, Mod Squad and Cool Botanica.
Designers Haley Loechel, Greg Dugdale and Jhanelle Baker’s pieces are all completely different but fill a unique niche in Indianapolis’ fashion scene. Boutiques Twirl and Broad Ripple Vintage will supplement the designers’ fashions with great clothes that are trendy and wearable.
Some of the pieces will be available for purchase or custom order after the show, so attendees can support our local talent.
Another interesting feature of the Trendianapolis show is its social media challenge, sponsored by Moondance Vacation Homes. An attendee with the best #trendianapolis tweet or photo on Instagram will be chosen for a $200 gift card for Moondance’s Brown County luxury cabins.
Hope to see you there!
